Dedicated hospital staff walk 50 miles for life saving equipment

Motivated staff at Scunthorpe General Hospital will be spending their bank holiday weekend clocking up the miles in a sponsored walk. 

Those involved will walk 50 miles between all three hospitals of the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLaG) over two days.

Dr Sahar Biuk arranged the walk as an attempt to give something back to the hospital.

Dr Biuk said: “I have worked with NLaG for almost two years now and have settled in to the department and hospital nicely. Everyone here is so lovely and welcoming, and they all work very hard to look after the patients.

“I wanted to do something that ties the three hospitals together as we are one Trust and this does that perfectly.

“I’m hoping we can raise a large amount for the intensive care unit (ITU) at Scunthorpe General Hospital to purchase some invaluable equipment that will greatly improve the care we provide for our patients.”

Staff nurse Jaime Hyde-Wyatt said: “The more equipment there is on ITU the better, the money raised will go such a long way in helping patients and staff.”

On Saturday 27 August, the staff will walk from Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby to Scunthorpe General Hospital. The following day will see them continue on from Scunthorpe General Hospital to Goole Hospital.

The doctors and nurses taking part in the walk will be wearing the scrubs or uniform throughout the walk.
